Shaking The Family Tree
Painstaking research by Margaret and members of her family has brought to life long lost ancestors and stories of their fascinating histories. Much had been deliberately and deeply buried but has now been unearthed to provide a colourful account of life in colonial Australia. This book tells their stories and reveals saints and sinners in equal measure. There were scandals, hints of murder, violence and time spent in gaol. Happier stories involved associations with royalty, financial success and the gaining of social respectability.
